Subject: The War of Capitalist Oligarchs: Who are the targets? What are the objectives?
May 8, 2022
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
The economic war of attrition, germ warfare, artillery attacks of annihilation, propaganda, PsyOps, political assassinations, etc., etc. - what are the objectives? Who is the enemy? At what price will their "victory" come? (See 5th Generation War -47:43, with James Corbett.)
Meanwhile, we continue with the stunningly criminal history reported in Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s book, “The Real Anthony Fauci,” the historical research of the political power of contemporary oligarchs which can be ignored only at our collective peril.
Below please find additional excerpts from this analysis of the on-going capitalist war of “full spectrum dominance” against humanity, decribing how it has evolved to incorporate our manufactured consent.

Chapter 1: Mismanaging a Pandemic…(con’d.)
As of October 6, US health officials had administered more than 230 doses of Pfizer COVID vaccine, compared to 152 million doses of Moderna, and 15 million doses of Johnson & Johnson.
The final summary of the Pfizer’s six-month clinical trial data – the document that Pfizer submitted to FDA to win approval - revealed one key data point that should have killed that intervention forever. Far more people died in the vaccine group than in the placebo group during Pfizer’s clinical trails. The fact that FDA nevertheless granted Pfizer full approval, and that the medical community embraced and prescribed this intervention for their patients, is eloquent testimony to the resilience of even the most deadly and infectious products, and the breathtaking power of the pharmaceutical industry and its government allies to control the narrative through captive regulators, compliant physicians, and media manipulation, and to overwhelm the fundamental common sense of much of humanity.
The Pfizer vaccine trial offers a lesson on the perils of ignoring “all-cause mortality” as the governing endpoint for vaccine approval. But before we talk about “all-cause mortality,” let’s look at the evidence that convinced FDA to grant Pfizer its license.
. . .
Mathematical Chicanery: Relative Risk vs. Absolute Risk.
A more honest – and helpful – way of thinking about the Pfizer vaccine’s efficacy is to consider that 22,000 vaccines must be given to save a single life from COVID. Equally concerning, every virologist and infectious disease expert knew that the true reduction in risk of 1/22,000 – or about 0.01 percent, as the BMJ reported – was far too insignificant to make the vaccine even a minor barrier against the spread of COVID. It’s axiomatic that any vaccine that does not prevent transmission and that spares only 1 in 22,000 from death from the target contagion has no ability to stop a pandemic. “Because the clinical trial showed that vaccines reduce absolute risk less than 1 percent (See: Brown R. and colleagues from Waterloo in Canada), those vaccines can’t possibly influence epidemic curves. It’s mathematically impossible,” explains Peter McCullough. Nevertheless, Dr. Fauci continued to promote the vaccine as the ultimate panacea.
The entire justification that Gates and Dr. Fauci had been trumpeting for a year – that their vaqcines sould end the pandemic – was now so much exploded shrapnel. Nevertheless, Dr. Fauci continieud ot claim that full vaccination of the entire population was the only way to end the pandemic. He thereby justified his insistence that Americans submit to mass vaccination.
But the story gets even worse. As table S4 shows, this entire meager advantage of preventing a single COVID death in every 22,000 vaccinated individuals (1/22,000) is entirely cancelled out by the fivefold increase in excess fatal cardiac arrests and congestive heart failures in vaccinated individuals (5/22,000). Pfizer and its regulatory magician, Dr. Fauci, used smoke and mirrors to divert public attention forml the all-important question of all-cause mortality.(pp.77-78)
In the US, COVID Vaccines Caused Record Deaths.
Despite CDC’s efforts to hide the carnage in the US, even the dysfunctional VAERS system has recorded unprecedented waves of documented deaths following COVID vaccines.
In 1976, US regulators pulled the swine flu vaccine after it was linked to 25 deaths. In contrast, between December 14, 2020 and October 1, 2022, American doctors and bereaved families have reported more than 16,000 deaths and a total of 778,685 injuries to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) following COVID vaccination. The Europeans’ surveillance sites tallied 40,000 deaths and 2.2 million adverse reactions. Due to chronic undercounting by VAERS and its European sister system, those numbers are almost certainly only a fraction of the true injuries. To illustrate how unprecedented this harm and death is, look at this “hockey stick” “effect in CDC’s own graph of the 30-year history of deaths reported to VAERS from all vaccines.
Health workers have administered many billions of vaccines during the past thirty-two years, yet in just eight months, the COVID vaccines have injured and killed fare more Americans than all other vaccines combined over three decades. VAERS data show the huge spikes – 69.84 percent – of deaths occurring during the two weeks after vaccination, 39.48 percent within 24 hours of he injections. According to CED’s fatality data, a COVID vaccine is 98 times more likely to kill that a flu vaccine.
Other databases have, not surprisingly, yielded much higher projections of COVID vaccine deaths than VAERS.
A recent peer-reviewed study in the high-gravitas Elsevier journal Toxicology Reports found that COVID-19 vaccines kill more people in each age group than they save. According to the study the ‘best-case scenario” is five times the number of deaths attributable to each vaccination vs. those attributable to COVID-19 in the most vulnerable 65+ demographic.
Similarly, a September 2021 analysis by a team of prominent scientists and mathematicians convened by SiliconValley entrepreneur Steve Kirsch – of half a dozen population and surveillance system databases, including VAERS – using eight different independent methods, attributes 150,000 deaths to COVID vaccines in the United States since January 2020. Kirsch has offered a million-dollar reward for anyone who finds an error in this calculation. Kirsch’s study which found that the vaccines kill more people than they save in very age range was consistent with Pfizer’s six-month clinical trial finding that people who took the vaccine were more likely to die than people who didn’t take the vaccine (there were a total of twenty deaths in the people who took the vaccine vs. fourteen deaths in the people who didn’t take the vaccine.
In yet another effort to calculate excess deaths from a non-VAERS database, Ohio-based Attorney Thomas Renz used the Medicare database (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) to calculate that there have been 48,465 deaths among Medicare/Medicaid beneficiaries within fourteen days of a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. There are about 59.4 million Americans covered by Medicare, representing only 18.1 percent of the population, so these staggering numbers are roughly comparable to Steve Kirsch’s population-wide estimate of 150,000.
How CDC Hid The Wave of Vaccine Deaths.
According to Dr. Fauci, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House, and most mainstream media, we now have a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” with 95 percent to 99 percent of COVID-related hospitalizations and deaths being attributed to the unvaccinated. As I mentioned above, these estimates are the product of systematic deception of the public – and presumably of the President – by America’s top regulators. So how did CDC go about fooling President Biden?
One of CDC’s bold deceptions is to hide vaccine mortalities in US data by counting all people a “unvaccinated” unless their deaths occur more than two weeks AFTER the second vaccine. (Ironically, CDEC doubles down on this fraud by counting many of these vaccine deaths as COVIC deaths.) In this way, CEC captures that wave of deaths that occurs after vaccination and attributes them all to ‘unvaccinated.” This is only one of many statistical chicaneries that the CDC employs to hide vaccine injuries and to stoke public fears of COVID.
The CDC utilized an even brassier canard to support President Joe Biden’s claim that 98 percent of vaccine hospitalizations and deaths were among the unvaccinated. In an August 5 video statement, CDC director Dr. Rochelle Walensky inadvertently revealed the agency’s principal gimmick for fabricating that statistic. Walensky sheepishly admitted that CDEC included hospitalization and mortality data from January through June 2021 in its calculation. The vast majority of the US population were, of course, unvaccinated during that time frame, so it makes sense that almost all hospitalizations would therefore be only among the unvaccinated. This is simply because there were almost no vaccinated Americans during that time period! By January 1, only 0.4 percent of the US population had received a COVID shot. By mid-April, an estimated 37 percent had received one or more shots and as of June 15, only 43.34 percent were fully “vaccinated.” Using these data was therefore pretty blatant fraud. Of course, CDC never let on that it was foisting eight-month-old data on Americans, allowing us instead to believe that these were current hospitalization rates as of August. To compound this flimflam, CDC perpetuated an even more audacious hustle. CDC omitted the current (as of August) data related to hospitalizations from the Delta variant, which disproportionately hospitalized vaccinated individuals in those other countries for which we have more reliable data.
CDC promotion of this statistical bunko was obviously grossly misleading. Assuming President Biden wasn’t deliberately lying to the American people, it’s clear that CDC was lying to President Biden and using him to dupe the rest of us.(pp.87-89)
Vaccinating Children is Unethical.
COVID-19 vaccines have caused cardiac arrest and blindness, and paralysis in American children. British Health Service reports emergency calls for cardiac arrest are at an all-time sigh since the government began offering teens the COVID-19 vaccine. COVID vaccines do not protect children from hospitalization or death associated with COVID-19 because healthy children is not being hospitalized or dying with COVID-19 [NHS statistics]. Children will not gain anything from having the jab because the vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission, as in three recent studies published by the CDC, UK government, and Oxford University. There is no evidence that the vaccines have prevented a single child’s death.
Troubling statistics from Britain’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) verify the expected: death among teenagers during the summer of 2021 increased significantly over the previous year, coinciding with the vaccine rollout. According to an analysis by The Exposé’s Will Jones, between weeks 23 and 37 in 2021 – simultaneous with the vaccine rollout – there were 252 deaths among 15-to-19-year-olds in England and Wales, compared to 162 in the same period in 2020, an increase of ninety, or 56 percent – a very high number that deserves some kind of explanation.
Media Censors Reports of Vaccine Deaths.
Most Americans are” unaware of all this carnage because the mainstream and social media companies immediately scrub injuries reported by doctors, victims, and families. Media outlets like CNN and the New York Times ignore the tsunami of vaccine injuries and deaths while reflexively inflating those deaths they can blame of COVID. As part of a broad propaganda agenda, they report –with seeming glee – the occasional COVID death among the unvaccinated.
. . .
Vaccinated Are Equally Likely to Spread COVID.
Dr. Fauci’s official theology makes “unvaccinated” America’s national scapegoat holding that they are more likely to spread disease and therefore should not be allowed to participate in civic life. The data across multiple sources and studies depict a very different reality.
In July 2021, the CDC found that fully vaccinated individuals who contract infection have as high a vital load in their nasal passages as unvaccinated individuals who get infected. This means the vaccinated are just as infectious as the unvaccinated.
Another study from Indonesia supported this observation, noting that vaccinated individuals carry 25x the viral load of Delta and other mutant variations than they did in the pre-vaccine era. Simply put, as Dr. Peter McCullough observed, “each vaccinated person is now a kind of Typhoid Mary for COVID, spreading concentrated viral loads of vaccine resistant mutants to vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. CED acknowledges that vaccinated individuals carry at least as many COVIS germs in their noses as the unvaccinated. CDC cited this revelation to justify the August 2021 mask mandate.(pp.92-96)
Chapter 2: Pharma Profits over Public Health…118
Over the last fifty years at NIH, Dr. Fauci has played a leading role in Big Pharma’s engineered demolition of American health and democracy, working hand in glove with pharmaceutical companies to overcome federal regulatory obstacles and transform the NIH and NIAID into a single-minded vehicle for development, promotion, and marketing of patented pharmaceutical products, including vaccines and vaccine-like products.
Most of us would like “America’s Doctor” to properly diagnose our illnesses using the best science, and then instruct us on how to get healthy. What if, instead of spending their entire budgets developing profitable pharmaceutical products, Dr. Fauci and the heads of other
NIH institutes deployed researchers to explore the links between glyphosate in food and the explosion of gluten allergies, the link between pesticide residues and the epidemic of neurological diseases and cancers, the causal connections between aluminum and Alzheimer’s disease, between mercury from coal plants and escalating autism rates, and the association of airborne particulates with the asthma epidemic? What if NIH financed research to explore the association between childhood vaccines and the explosion of juvenile diabetes, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis, and the links between aluminum vaccine adjuvants and the epidemics of food allergies and allergic rhinitis? What if they studied the impacts of sugar and soft drinks on obesity and diabetes, and the association between endocrine disruptors, processed foods, factory farms, and GMOs on the dramatic decline in public health? What would Americans look like if, for fifty years, we had a public health advocate running one of our top health agencies—instead of a Pharma shill? What would have happened if we’d spent that hundreds of billions dollars on real science, instead of drug development? Dr. Fauci seems willing only to give us diagnoses and cures that benefit Big Pharma—instead of public health—and to cover his trail with artifice.
His critics have compared Dr. Fauci to a
similarly long-lived federal agency bureaucrat, J. Edgar Hoover, who used his
five-decade dictatorial control of the FBI to transform the agency into a
vehicle for shielding organized crime, fortifying his corrupt political
partners, oppressing Black Americans, surveilling his
political enemies, suppressing free speech and dissent, and as a platform for
building a cult of personality around his own inflated ego. More
recently, Dr. Fauci’s perennial biographer, Charles Ortleb, analogized Dr. Fauci’s career and pathological mendacity to the sociopathic con men Bernie Madoff and Charles Ponzi. Another critic, author J. B. Handley, labeled Dr. Fauci “a snake oil salesman” and a “bigger medical charlatan than Rasputin.” Economist and author Peter Navarro, former Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, observed during a national network television interview in April 2021 that “Fauci is a sociopath and a liar.”
His white lab coat, his official title, and his groaning bookshelves crowded with awards from his medical cartel collaborators allow Dr. Fauci to masquerade as a neutral, disinterested scientist and selfless public servant driven by a relentless commitment to public health. But Dr. Fauci doesn’t really do public health. By every metric, his fifty-year regime has been a catastrophe for American health. But as a businessman, his success has been boundless.
In 2010, Dr. Fauci told adoring New Yorker writer Michael Specter that his go-to political playbook is Mario Puzo’s novel The Godfather. He spontaneously recited his favorite line from Puzo’s epic: “It’s nothing personal, it’s strictly business.”(pp.122-123)
Chapter 3: The HIV Pandemic Template for Pharma Profiteering…126
An Agency Without a Mission.
In 1955, as deaths from epidemic disease declined, NIAID’s forerunner
organization at NIH, the National Microbiological Institute (NMI), became part
of the NIAID, to reflect the diminished national significance of infectious
diseases and the unexplained increases in
allergic and immune system diseases. Congress ordered NIAID to support “innovative scientific approaches to address the causes of these diseases and find better ways to prevent and treat them.” Food allergies and asthma were still rare enough to be considered remarkable. Eczema was practically unknown, as were most autoimmune diseases, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Graves’ disease, Crohn’s disease, and myelitis.20,21
As early as 1949, Congressional bills to abolish CDC because of the remarkable decline in infectious disease mortalities twice won by impressive majorities.22 From the mid-1970s, CDC was seeking to justify its existence by assisting state health departments to track down small outbreaks of rabies and a mouse disease called hantavirus, and by linking itself to the military’s bioweapons projects. Looking back from 1994, Red Cross officer Paul Cummings
told the San Francisco Chronicle that “The CDC increasingly needed a major epidemic” to justify its existence.23 According to Peter Duesberg, author of Inventing the AIDS Virus, the HIV/AIDS theory was salvation for American epidemic authorities.
James Curran, the Chief of the CDC’s Sexually Transmitted Diseases unit, described the desperation among the public health corps in the early 1980s: “There was double-digit inflation, very high unemployment, a rapid military buildup and a threat to decrease all domestic programs, and this led to workforce cuts at the Public Health Service, and particularly CDC.” Nobel Laureate Kary Mullis similarly recalled the institutional desperation during the Reagan administration era. He said of the CDC: “They were hoping for a new plague. Polio was over. There were memos going around the agency saying, ‘We need to find the new plague’; ‘We need to find something to scare the American people so they will give us more money.’” NIH scientist Dr. Robert Gallo—who would become Dr. Fauci’s partner, coconspirator, and confidant—offered a similar assessment: “The CDC in Atlanta was under threat for reductions and even theoretically for closure.”
Drumming up public fear of periodic pandemics was a natural way for NIAID and CDC bureaucrats to keep their agencies relevant. Dr. Fauci’s immediate boss and predecessor as NIAID Director, Richard M. Krause, helped pioneer this new strategy in 1976, during Dr. Fauci’s first year at the agency. Krause was a champion of what he called “The Return of the Microbes” strategy, which sought to reinstate microbes to their former status as the feared progenitors of deadly diseases. That year, federal regulators concocted a fake swine flu epidemic that temporarily raised hopes around CDC for the resurrection of its reputation as a life-saving superhero.
Even in that idealistic era, regulators were allowing Pharma to craft public health policy behind closed doors. Director
Krause, whom Dr. Fauci would shortly succeed,
invited Merck executives to sit in on internal planning meetings as collaborators.30 Working with Merck, NIAID used taxpayer funds to subsidize development and distribution of vaccines,32 and to rush untested products to market.33 But the swine flu pandemic was a dud, and HHS’s response was a global embarrassment. Only one casualty—a soldier at Fort Dix34—succumbed to the “pandemic,” and Merck’s experimental vaccine triggered a
national epidemic of Guillain-Barré syndrome, a devastating form of paralysis resembling polio, before regulators recalled the jab.35 The four vaccine manufacturers—Merck & Co., Merrell, Wyeth, and Parke-Davis—had refused to sell the vaccines to the government
unless they were guaranteed profits and indemnity. They were sued for $19 million within months of the vaccination campaign. The Department of Justice handled the lawsuits.
Prior to 1997, the FDA forbade pharmaceutical advertising on
television, and the drug companies had not yet transformed television reporters
into pharmaceutical reps. Journalists, in short, were still permitted to do journalism.
Sixty Minutes aired a scathing segment in which Mike Wallace mercilessly
exposed the corruption, incompetence, and cover-ups at HHS that led to the
phony swine flu pandemic and the wave of casualties from NIH’s
experimental vaccine. The scandal forced the resignation of CDC Director David Sencer for his role in concocting the phony pandemic and pushing the dangerous vaccine. NIAID chief Richard Krause quietly resigned in 1984, deeding his seat to his faithful deputy, Tony Fauci. In a poignant emblem of the ascending power of the pharmaceutical paradigm under Dr. Fauci’s stewardship, the Sixty Minutes report on the 1976 pandemic scandal [ or at https://odysee.com/@awakening-now:c/60+Minutes+Swine+Flu+1976:2] is now largely scrubbed from the Internet. You can still view it on the Children’s Health Defense website.(pp.130-131)
Despite those catastrophic outcomes, Dr. Fauci’s
takeaway from the 1976 swine flu crisis seems to have been the revelation that
pandemics were opportunities of convenience for expanding agency power and
visibility, and for cementing advantageous partnerships with
pharmaceutical behemoths and for career advancement. Four years later, the AIDS pandemic proved a redemptive juncture for NIAID and the launch pad for Dr. Fauci’s stellar rise. The lessons he learned from orchestrating regulatory responses to the AIDS crisis would become
familiar templates for managing subsequent pandemics.
Tony Fauci spent the next half-century crafting public responses to a series of real and concocted viral outbreaks40,41—HIV/AIDS42 in 1983; SARS43 in 2003; MERS44,45,46 in 2014; bird flu47,48 in 2005; swine flu (“novel H1N1”)49 in 2009; dengue50,51 in 2012; Ebola52 in 2014–2016; Zika53 in 2015–2016; and COVID-1954 in 2020. When authentic epidemics failed to materialize, Dr. Fauci became skilled at exaggerating the severity of contagions to scare the public and further his career.
Even all those years ago, Anthony Fauci had already perfected his special style of ad-fear-tising, using remote, unlikely, farfetched and improbable possibilities to frighten people. Fauci helped terrify millions into wrongly believing they were at risk of getting AIDS when they were not; emphasis in his statement is added to highlight the caveats and conditional language:
The long incubation period of this disease, we may be
starting to see, as we’re seeing virtually, as the months go
by, other groups that can be involved, and seeing it in
children is really quite disturbing. If the close contact of
the child is a household contact, perhaps there will be a
certain number of
individuals who are just living with and
in close contact with someone with AIDS or at risk of
AIDS who does not necessarily have to have intimate
sexual contact or share a needle, but just the ordinary close
contact that one sees in normal interpersonal relationships.
Now that may be farfetched in a sense that there have
been no cases recognized as yet in which individuals have
had merely casual contact, close or albeit with an
individual with AIDS who for example have gotten AIDS.
example, there have been no cases yet reported of
hospital personnel, who have fairly close contact with
patients with AIDS. There have been no case reports of
them getting AIDS; but the jury is still out on that
because the situation is constantly evolving and the
incubation period is so long, as you know. It’s a
mean of about fourteen months, ranging from six to eighteen
months. So what medical researchers and public health
service officials will be—are concerned with is what
we felt were the confines of transmissibility now going
to be loosening
up and broadening up so that something
less than truly intimate contact can give transmission of
The message people took away from those 250 rambling and obfuscating words: “Something less than truly intimate contact can give you this disease.”
Translated into English, however, it’s just twelve words of truth: There have been zero cases of AIDS spread by ordinary close contact.
Fauci’s most vocal critics complain that, from his earliest
days running NIAID, he was neither a competent manager nor a particularly skilled
or devoted scientist. His gifts were his aptitude for bureaucratic infighting;
temper; an inclination for flattering and soft-soaping powerful superiors; a vindictive and domineering nature toward subordinates and rivals who dissented; his ravenous appetite for the spotlight; and finally, his silver tongue and skilled tailor. He won his initial beachhead by wresting jurisdiction over the AIDS crisis from NIH’s Big Kahuna, the National Cancer Institute (NCI).55
In 1981, the CDC first recognized the emergence of a new disease that health officials dubbed Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) among about fifty gay men in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. The AIDS crisis
initially landed at NCI because the condition’s most pronounced signal was Kaposi’s sarcoma, which was then considered a deadly skin cancer associated with immune suppression.(pp.131-132)
. . .
The AIDS crisis’s best-known
activist—and the most vocal critic of the NIH response—playwright Larry Kramer,
may have been the first to make the cold assessment about Dr. Fauci’s winning capacity for combining charm and flattery ith evasion, misdirection, and misinformation to bedazzle the
media into suspending skepticism and overlooking his reliable incompetence.
“The main reason that Fauci has gotten away with so
much,” Kramer observed in 1987, “is
that he’s attractive and handsome and dapper and extremely well spoken and he never answers your question.” Historians Torsten Engelbrecht, author ofVirus Mania, and Konstantin Demeter call Fauci “Dr. Baron of Lies.”
Asked to offer thoughts on Fauci, veteran AIDS “war” reporter Celia Farber pulls back and takes a broad view. She said:
People understand the Arendt concept of the “banality of
You have set yourself the formidable task of
deconstructing him. Why is he “evil”? (Which he is.)
It’s not because he is so “banal,” so
boring. That’s the drag costume.
In fact, he is a revolutionary—a very

what he was bringing in.

Correctness—now called “woke.”
the entire linguistic system of American
science, from classical “speak,” to woke “speak.” He
brought in Cancel Culture, essentially, before anybody
could imagine what it was. It was too perverse for genuine
scientists to conceive of such a thing mixing with science,
they could not believe it, or grasp it. Like a rape. It was
incredibly confusing. That’s what I documented, on the
ground, that horror and confusion among real scientists, as
American science changes so radically before their eyes, to
Farber went on:
elaborate a bit. Fauci’s reign begins in 1984, a year
change. Everything changes, all of a sudden. Gallo is deployed with
Margaret Heckler to make the declaration by US Government fiat
that the “probable cause of AIDS” had been “found” and that it was
some kind of trans-Atlantic fusion that looked “virus like” on the big
screen, but was really neither a cogent virus nor a pathogen. The
reason it “flew” to use [Nature Bio/Technology founding editor]
Harvey Bialy’s word, was because everything had already changed.
It was understood, without overt commands, that the “gay cancer”
that had everybody in such a panic could not be assessed as complex
toxic illness with a complex cause. The entire US media understood
what to say and not say, and not only because of the allegiance to the
shadow government, but because the era of classical science had
ended. It ended that day. It would henceforth be a crime against decency to, for example, address anything that could be making gay
men sick other than “the virus.”
That’s not “bad science.” That’s perfectly
correctness. And they are diametrically at odds, in the Biblical sense
of good and evil.
What Fauci did
was he made political correctness the new
currency, of his funding empire. Peter Duesberg was not “wrong”
about HIV and AIDS, he was politically incorrect about it and that
was how Fauci banished him—sentenced him to funding and
reputation death, as though he had done something
really bad by dissenting against HIV theory. Stop and think how insane this is. An elite cancer virologist brought over from Germany’s Max Planck Institute whose credentials are so outstanding, who was well on his way to solving cancer’s genetics . . . felled suddenly by a fatwah,
issued by this . . . Mufti? Who was he to issue a fatwah against
America’s top cancer virologist? Well, he did. He blocked every
federal research dollar to Duesberg after 1987, because Duesberg
repudiated the woke ideology Fauci’s HIV empire, in a few
paragraphs of a scientific paper that was about something else. He
sustained the economic and reputational attack/vendetta for the next
3 decades. Without blinking. It’s really an unbelievable story. It
would make Americans’ blood boil if they knew about it—because
almost all have lost somebody in their family to cancer.
Fauci had, by
1987, when Duesberg wrote the Cancer Research paper
that sealed his scientific fate, an apparatus that included mass media,
psychological operations, public health—this octopus that just
straight-up throttled the entire scientific tradition of Western
civilization. Evidence based science and the discourse culture that
goes with it— gone. That’s what he did. It’s no small feat. He
destroyed American science by snuffing out its spirit, the spirit of
open inquiry, proof and standards.
The reason so many outstanding scientists
lent their names to
opposing Fauci’s vendetta on Duesberg was not that they cared,
necessarily, about the cause of AIDS; This was, for them, a battle
over the very soul of science. Kary Mullis [PCR inventor] broke down
crying in an interview I did with him in 1994, talking about it—
talking about what Fauci did to Peter Duesberg and what it meant.
The real scientists were horrified.
Suddenly a guillotine was
present. A new and strange terror. People were “guilty,” of thought-
crimes like “HIV denialism.” Fauci had made political correctness the
new revolutionary language, see? And that meant if you were “bad,” if you didn’t push agenda driven science, everything was taken away
from you. And the media cheered. And anybody who didn’t was
destroyed, vilified, harassed, fired, in a word, canceled.
His gifts for deflection, misdirection,
and obfuscation, and perhaps his boyish charm, give Dr. Fauci
a Teflon quality—which he shared with President Ronald Reagan, under whom he
initially came to power. Something about Dr. Fauci
allows him to escape responsibility for (or even mild questioning about) his
steady parade of sketchy decisions, his confident claims unsupported by
scientific evidence, his relentless cascade of lies and failed predictions, and
miserable track record for keeping Americans healthy.
As the nation’s newly appointed AIDS czar, Dr. Fauci
was now a gatekeeper for almost all AIDS research. NCI already had long
experience and robust infrastructure for conducting clinical trials on new
drugs. NIAID had neither.
Nevertheless, parroting NCI’s vows to cure cancer, Dr. Fauci promised Congress that he would quickly produce drugs and vaccines to banish AIDS. In his 1990 book, Nussbaum concludes that Fauci’s triumph over NCI cost many thousands of Americans their lives during the AIDS crisis. Myriad contemporary critics concurred with that assessment.(pp.133-135)
The PIs: The Pharma/Fauci MercenaryArmy
lack of in-house drug development capacity allowed Dr. Fauci
to build his new program by farming out drug research to a network of so-called
“principal investigators,” or PIs, effectively controlled by pharmaceutical
companies. Today, when people refer to the “Medical Cartel,” they are
principally speaking of pharmaceutical companies, hospital systems, HMOs and
insurers, the medical journals, and public health regulators. But the glue that holds all these institutions together, and allows them to march in lockstep, is the army of PIs who act as lobbyists, spokespersons, liaisons, and enforcers. Tony Fauci played a key historic role in elevating this cohort to dominate public health policy.
PIs are powerful academic physicians and
researchers who use federal grants and pharmaceutical industry contracts to
build feudal empires at universities and
research hospitals that mainly conduct clinical trials—a key stage in the licensing process— for new pharmaceutical products. Thanks to NIH’s largesse, and to NIAID in particular, a relatively tiny network of PIs—a few hundred—
determines the content and direction of virtually all America’s biomedical research.
In 1987, some $4.6 billion of NIH’s $6.1
billion budget went to these off-campus researchers.71 By 1992, NIH’s budget
had expanded to $8.9 billion,72 with $5 billion going to
outside scientists at 1,300 universities, laboratories, and
other elite institutions.73,74 Today, Dr. Fauci’s NIAID alone controls $7.6 billion in annual discretionary expenditures that he distributes mainly to PIs around the globe.
PIs are pharmaceutical industry surrogates
who play key roles promoting the pharmaceutical paradigm and functioning as
high priests of all its orthodoxies, which they proselytize with missionary
zeal. They use their seats on medical boards and chairmanships of university departments
to propagate dogma and root out heresy. They enforce message discipline, silence
contrary opinions, and punish dissent. They populate the Data and Safety Monitoring Boards (DSMBs) that influence the design of clinical trial protocols and guide the interpretation of clinical trial outcomes and conclusions; the external advisory FDA panel, Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), that guides determination of whether new vaccines are “safe and effective” and merit licensure (marketing); and the
CDC panel, The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), that essentially mandates vaccines to children. They are the credentialed and trusted medical experts who prognosticate on television networks—now helplessly reliant on pharmaceutical ad revenue—to push out Pharma content. These “experts”—Paul Offit, Peter Hotez, Stanley Plotkin, Ian Lipkin, William Schaffner, Kathleen Edwards, Arthur Caplan, Stanley Katz, Greg Poland, and Andrew Pollard—appear between Pharma ads on network and cable news shows to promote the annual flu shots and measles scares, to drum up fears about COVID, and to rail against “anti-vaxxers.” They write the steady stream of editorials that appear in local and national newspapers to reinforce the hackneyed orthodoxies of the pharmaceutical paradigms—“all vaccines are safe and effective,” etc. They root out heresy by sitting on the state medical boards—the “Inquisition” courts—that censure and de-license dissident doctors. They control the medical journals and peer-review journal literature to fortify
Pharma’s agenda. They teach on medical school faculties, populate journal editorial boards, and chair university departments. They supervise hospitals and chair hospital departments. They act as expert witnesses for pharmaceutical companies in civil court and the federal vaccine court. They present awards to one another.(135-136)

How PIs Control Public Marketing.
choice to transfer virtually all of NIAID’s budget to pharmaceutical PIs for
drug development was an abdication of the agency’s duty to find the source and eliminate
the explosive epidemics of allergic and autoimmune disease that began under his
watch around 1989.115,116 Refereed science, surveillance data, and manufacturers’
inserts all implicate the very drugs and
vaccines that Tony Fauci largely helped develop as culprits in those new epidemics. NIAID money effectively became a giant subsidy to the blossoming pharmaceutical industry to incubate a pipeline of profitable new drugs targeted to treat the symptoms of those very diseases.
While NIH remains a massive funding source for PIs, rich contracts from big drug companies and royalty payments from drug products often dwarf their government funding. Pharma money is the PIs’ bread and butter, commanding their loyalties and dictating their priorities. They and their clinics and research institutions are, effectively, arms of the pharmaceutical industry. Their empires rely on Pharma for their growth and survival.
Moreover, PIs typically function in quasi-feudal fiefdoms: loyal to a
single pharmaceutical company. Each drug company—Glaxo,
Pfizer, Merck, Sanofi, Johnson & Johnson, and
Gilead—cultivates a cadre of its own reliable PIs whom it funds to conduct
clinical trials and drug research. Unwritten protocols dictate that a Merck PI
will not customarily perform research for a Merck competitor. Typically, the drug company contracts with the reliable PI’s medical
school, attending hospital, or research institution to run clinical trials.
The company makes payments ranging from a few hundred dollars to $10,000
(depending on the trial phase, complexity, and the company) for each patient
enrolled in the drug trial,117 with the university skimming one-half to two-thirds of those funds for “academic overhead.”118 Those payments from the pharmaceutical company secure long-term loyalty from the institution and
its board. Moreover, both the researcher and the university customarily share patent interests in any product the PI helps develop, collecting rich royalties when it hits the market. Additional money from the Pharma sponsor supports the PI’s assistants and laboratory costs. The drug company also pays “legalized bribes” to the PI grantee through honoraria, expert witness fees, speaking gigs, and first-class travel to exclusive resorts for conferences. All these perquisites tend to fortify loyalty and incentivize the favorable research results necessary to securing FDA drug approvals. On all sides of these transactions, each stakeholder understands that positive reviews of the subject drug promise future work.
According to Nussbaum, “PIs do their own kind of science and, more often
than not, their experiments have little to do with either health or the public.
They test drugs by private pharmaceutical companies for personal gain, for
money that goes to their universities, and for power.”
The system allows pharmaceutical companies to systematically divert
federal monies—the initial NIAID grant—to serve their own private profit
Naturally, the system is hostile to drugs with expired patents or those that emerge from companies that are not paying the PI’s research expenses. This bias explains Dr. Fauci’s signature animosity toward non-pharmaceutical,
unpatentable, or patent-expired and generic remedies.
In his unpublished history of the HIV era, Down the Rabbit Hole, author and historian Terry Michael offers a similar description of Dr. Fauci’s abrogation of his scientific role to the army of Pharma PIs: “But NIH has other clients, including thousands of grant-seeking medical science Ph.D.’s produced by American universities after World War II. NIAID funds much of the pharmaceutical industry’s research and clinical trials. In fact, Big Pharma has become a client of the NIH and especially its NIAID.” This powerful army, garrisoned at hospitals and universities in every large American community, allows Pharma and Dr. Fauci to control the public health narrative around the country. Before I understood its structure, I encountered the pervasive power of the combination.
Between 1990 and 2020, I served as president of an influential
environmental group, Waterkeepers, with 350 affiliates
around the county and the globe. Waterkeepers is the
world’s largest water protection group. I published regularly in the New York
Times and all the major papers:Boston Globe, Houston
Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times, Los Angeles Times,
Miami Herald, and San Francisco Chronicle; in magazines including
Esquire, Rolling Stone, and The Atlantic; and in online publications, most often inHuffPost. I delivered over 220 speeches each year, including sixty paid speaking engagements to large audiences at universities and corporate events. I earned a substantial income from those appearances. All that changed in 2005, after I published an article, “Deadly Immunity,” about corruption in CDC’s vaccine branch, simultaneously in Rolling Stone and Salon.
Newspapers thereafter generally refused to publish my articles on
vaccine safety and ultimately banned me from publishing on any issues. In 2008,
without consulting me or citing a specific reason, Salon retracted and removed
my 2005 article. Salon’s founder, David Talbot, faulted Salon for caving in to Pharma. Rolling Stone finally removed the article without
explanation in February 2021, and HuffPost purged all
half-dozen of my vaccine articles. The editors of those online journals had
thoroughly fact-checked my pieces prior to publication. They removed them
without notice to me, and without ever explaining their decisions. It was the
beginning of the mass censorship of any vaccine information that departs from
official narratives. That year, universities and corporate hosts and municipal
speakers’ forums suddenly cancelled my scheduled speeches in droves. My
bookings dropped from sixty paid speeches per year down to one or two. My
speakers’ bureau told me that floods of telephone calls from powerful members
of the medical community had prompted the cancellations. They deluged the
offices of presidents and board members of the colleges, businesses, and
community groups that were hosting me, protesting my appearances. The callers
were public health officials and leading doctors from local hospitals,
university medical schools, and influential
research centers in those locales. Using similar language, they offered dire warnings that I was anti-vaccine, anti-science, a “baby killer,” and that my appearance would jeopardize public health and vital funding to university
medical school programs.
The threat to interrupt money flows to the university PIs invariably trumps the traditions of speech freedom revered —in theory—by university administrators. Starting in 2019, PIs at NYU attempted to force the ouster of popular historian and propaganda expert Professor Mark Crispin Miller from its faculty roster and law professor Mary Holland from its law school faculty because they dared question reigning vaccine orthodoxies.
Terry Michaels summarized how Dr. Fauci exploited the strategic landscapes of the HIV pandemic to launch his career on a trajectory toward the unimaginable power that would allow him to dictate official orthodoxies, control the press, set international health policies, and even to shut down the global economy: “Dr. Anthony Fauci seized an opportunity to create a multi-billion dollar bureaucracy, distributing thousands of grants to seekers of federally funded research largesse, with a disproportionate (to other diseases) number going to HIV-AIDS researchers.”
Tony Fauci did not create the PI system, but his inexperience both as a scientist and as an administrator meant that he relied upon it and was, at first, at its mercy. Later, he took command of those troops and organized them into a powerful juggernaut that journalist John Lauritsen calls “the Medical Industrial Complex.”(pp.141-143)

China Holds Secret Bank Meetings To Plan For Protecting Assets From US Sanctions

China is taking serious steps to prepare itself for potential future US sanctions such as have been imposed against Russia's banking sector, with regulators recently convening an emergency meeting of domestic and foreign banks to examine how to best protect the country's overseas assets.
Over the weekend the FT identified that the internal conference was held on April 22 and included top officials from China's central bank and finance ministry. It's also said that representatives were sent from every domestic and Chinese overseas bank, and additionally some China-tied international institutions, notably among them HSBC. The somewhat secretive conference was held as Russia is charging Washington with stealing $300 billion of its assets held overseas.

Enormous U.S. Military Spending, EU Dragged into Abyss of War against Russia. Italy Out of the War!
by Manlio Dinucci
President Biden has asked Congress for another 33 billion dollars to arm and train the Ukrainian forces, in addition to the 20 billion dollars already allocated and provided to Kiev: a total of over 50 billion dollars from 2014 for the war against Russia. At the same time, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin met in Germany with representatives of more than 40 countries, including Italy, to plan additional arms shipments.
This results in enormous military spending of public money diverted from social spending. For example, the M777 howitzer supplied to Ukrainian forces can fire 7 Excalibur bullets per minute at 40 km. Each bullet costs $112,000. Therefore in one minute the howitzer shoots bullets costing the equivalent of 25 gross annual salaries (according to the Italian average).
The US and NATO are thus conducting a proxy war against Russia in Europe, which began with the 2014 coup d’état and the attack on the Russian populations of Ukraine. Dramatic evidence of this is the massacre in Odessa on May 2, 2014, carried out by the neo-Nazi forces – Pravi Sektor, Azov Battalion and others – that have since assumed power in Kiev.

FBI Warrantless Searches of Americans’ Data Doubled From 2020 to 2021: ODNI
The number of searches conducted by the FBI of Americans’ communications doubled from 2020 to 2021, according to a report released April 29 by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI).
The ODNI report details U.S. intelligence agencies’ use of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which authorizes the warrantless surveillance of electronic communications content stored by U.S. internet service providers. ODNI noted that this year’s report is the first one to track the FBI’s use of “unminimized Section 702 collection”—raw data collected by the National Security Agency (NSA).
According to the report, the FBI used its Section 702 powers to collect the data of some 3.4 million U.S. persons in 2021—up from 1.3 million a year before. The report only provides statistics for 2020 and 2021.
A senior FBI official reportedly said in a press briefing Friday that the 3.4 million figure “is certainly a large number.”
“I am not going to pretend that it isn’t,” the official said, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Senior Biden Administration officials reportedly attributed the uptick in FBI searches to Russian cyberattacks throughout 2021.
“More specifically on this threat, we identified a pool of potential victims, which did include U.S. persons, and we ran that against our 702 collection in order to identify who, in particular, Russia was actually targeting,” the senior official said, according to The Record.
The report noted that tracking the exact number of Americans caught in the FBI’s surveillance dragnet is difficult because the bureau tracks its Section 702 data differently from other agencies.
“For reasons discussed more fully below, these statistics are reported separately from NSA, CIA, and NCTC due to unique variations in FBI’s data, chief among them that FBI does not count the number of unique query terms, but instead counts the total number of queries, which could include duplicate queries of the same term,” the report said.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) released a statement on April 29, reacting to the report and calling for a more detailed explanation from the FBI. Section 702 of FISA is set to expire next year unless reauthorized by Congress.
“For anyone outside the U.S. government, the astronomical number of FBI searches of Americans’ communications is either highly alarming or entirely meaningless. Somewhere in all that over-counting are real numbers of FBI searches, for content and for non-content—numbers that Congress and the American people need before Section 702 is reauthorized,” Wyden said.
“The FBI must also be transparent about the particular circumstances in which it conducted a staggering 1.9 million additional queries in 2021,” he said. “Finally, the public deserves to know whether the FBI has fully addressed the extensive abuses of its 702 search authorities that have been documented for years. Baseline transparency is essential if the federal government wants to hold such sweeping surveillance powers.”

Isn’t it always?
With the start of World War III by the United States “declaring” war against Russia by its actions in Ukraine, we have entered a time when the end of time has become very possible. I am speaking of nuclear annihilation.
I look down at my great-uncle’s gold Elgin pocket watch from the 19th century. His name was John Patrick Whalen, an Irish immigrant to the U.S. who fled England’s colonialist created famine in Ireland. It tells me it is 5:15 PM on April 21, 2022, a date, coincidentally, with a history. No doubt John looked at his watch on this date in 1898 when the United States, after the USS Maine exploded from within in Havana harbor (a possible false flag attack), declared war on Spain in order to confiscate Spanish territories – Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines. One colonial power replaced another and then proceeded over the long decades to wage war and slaughter these island peoples. Imperialism never dies. It is timeless.
One hundred-and twenty-four years go by in a flash and it’s still the same old story. In 1898 the yellow press screamed Spanish devils and today it screams Russian devils. Then and now the press called for war. If the human race is still here in another 124 years, time and the corporate media will no doubt have told the same story – war and propaganda’s lies to an insouciant and ignorant population too hypnotized by propaganda to oppose them. This despite the apocalyptic sense that permeates our lives because of demonic technology and its use to transform humans into machines who can’t think clearly enough to perceive reality and realize the threat posed by that quintessential technological invention – nuclear weapons.

21st Century Wire says….
Ever since the air of insanity of the global pseudo-pandemic began to subside in the autumn of 2021, western politicians – especially the authoritarian fanatics holding court places like the US, UK, Canada, EU, Australia and New Zealand – have been busy gaslighting their citizens 24/7, in their desperate attempt to distract everyone from the impending economic disaster that was already building.
The initial signs were unmistakable to any honest pundit: a rapid uptick in inflation last fall, propelled by two consecutive years of out-of-control quantitative easing (aka printing money like there was no tomorrow) supposedly to save us all from a seasonal flu virus, but also driven by hyperinflationary trends in the natural gas and energy markets, as EU governments (egged on by Washington) began putting the squeeze on Russian gas and oil supplies to Europe, and combined with postmodernist green energy diktats being enforced on both sides of the Atlantic, all of which gave Enronist energy speculators plenty of ammunition to drive-up energy prices on market exchanges. Remember, this all began popping way before Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine. That said, after the Russia invasion began in late February 2022, and the collective West imposed a global financial embargo on Russia, the global economy went into terminal decline, including serious disruptions to essential agriculture and food supplies worldwide.
Remember, everything we’ve just mentioned was a direct result of deliberate western government policy decisions, and not because of a virus, or Vladimir Putin. Despite this obvious fact, the western mainstream media and political establishment are desperately trying to cover their tracks and insist that our economy is tanking because of “Covid and Putin.”

By thus colluding with state bureaucrats like Fauci and Collins, to smear and silence those with differing views, "our free press" served as an institutional accomplice to the government's suppression of free speech.
I urge everyone to please distribute this widely. Ex-Trump covid advisor Dr. Paul Alexander is Exhibit A for proof of Fauci/CDC/NIH/Big Pharma malfeasance. In this spellbinding interview, Dr. Alexander talks about how when he tried to provide Fauci et al solid science for not locking down schools and not masking children, he was viciously attacked, told his “balls” would be “cut off” and then smeared in the media. He also says W.H.O. lied about no “human to human” transmission of the corona virus early on and that Operation Warp Speed “snookered” Americans into paying billions upfront for useless and harmful vaccines.

Many People Fully Vaccinated for COVID Are Now Going Blind
By Ethan Huff
Global Research, April 29, 2022
We have heard all about the many cases of myocarditis and pericarditis post-injection, as well as recipients repeatedly testing “positive” for the virus even after doing the deed. But there is another concerning side effect occurring in the “fully vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) that is rarely mentioned: blindness.
The latest data out of the United Kingdom suggests that a growing number of fully jabbed people are losing their eyesight. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Yellow Card system currently shows 163 cases of total blindness among people who got jabbed with the Pfizer-BioNTech needle, along with an additional six cases of central vision loss and four cases of sudden visual loss.
Twenty-one people also reportedly now suffer from “blindness transient” specifically caused by the Pfizer injection. This adverse reaction involves visual disturbance or loss of sight in one eye for a few seconds or even minutes at a time.
Another 20 people beyond that are reported to have suffered from a reaction called “unilateral blindness,” which is when a person got blind or blurred vision in just one eye.
“In total, there have been 8,016 eye disorders reported as adverse reactions to the Pfizer jab as of 6th April 2022,” reported the Daily Exposé.

These new numbers tally with those from Sweden, Israel and Canada.
Serious adverse jab reactions 40 times higher than previously reported
The interviews showed that the number of serious side effects was 40 times higher than previously reported by medical supervisors the Paul Ehrlich Institute, according to MDR, the public broadcaster of the states of Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony. The number of side effects resulting from normal vaccines, such as those against polio or measles, is considerably lower, researchers pointed out.

"Product administered to patient of inappropriate age"This shouldn't be a thing, in my opinion.
I have reported on this previously in one of my presentations to the FDA at a VRBPAC meeting on October 26, 2021. I reported to the members and judging panel that there were 5510 children aged 0-18 who had filed reports to VAERS for having been injected with the COVID-19 products inappropriately.
In the following slide is shown an example of an 11-year old who had been injected inappropriately and died an unreported amount of time thereafter.
I revisited this MedDRA code today and wanted to report that this number has more than doubled (N = 11,314) since last October and occuring at increasingly younger ages. I stratified the reports filed for “Product administered to patient of inappropriate age” by age group and plotted the results in a bar plot as shown below. Of the 11,015 adverse events reports for which age data exists, 85% occur the 12-18 age group.
Almost 10,000 12-18 year olds were inappropriately injected. Meaning, that at the time when the EUA was valid for a specific age group, those children were under the minimum age requirement.
And don’t get me started on the babies. No wait, They deserve to be acknowledged.

Billions in Weapons, Zero Negotiations, Reveal Real US Agenda in Ukraine
By Walt Zlotow
May 2, 2022
The US has never once offered negotiations as a path toward peace.
Monday. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said, “One of the US’s goals in Ukraine is to see a weakened Russia.” He also said, “The U.S. is ready to move heaven and earth to help Ukraine win the war against Russia.”
The first statement contains no goal of saving Ukrainian lives. That is because saving Ukrainians is not a major focus of US war aims in Ukraine. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called out America’s disregard of the staggering death and destruction there saying “There are countries within NATO who want the war to continue. They want Russia to become weaker.”
Apparently “heaven and earth” in the second statement includes billions in weaponry, but not a single pair of US boots on the ground. Nor does it include American war planes; even a no-fly zone to counter Russian air superiority. That telegraphs America does not consider the Ukraine war critical to America’s national self-interests that risks a single American life. US policy boils down to: Ukraine does the dying; America does the supplying.
The US has never once offered negotiations as a path toward peace. For the US to enter negotiations, they would have to cease denying the provocative history of the US, NATO, and ultra nationalist Ukrainians’ actions toward Russia’s borders, including the killing of 14,000 Russian speaking Ukrainians in the Donbas. Refusing to address that long, tortured history makes a negotiated settlement virtually impossible. That leaves endless weaponry provoking even stronger Russian warfare, guaranteeing the killing goes on throughout 2022, per Secretary of State Antony Blinken, or even several years according to Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley.
But endless war and deaths is just one of several calamities facing the world by using weapons, and its less violent policy mate, sanctions, instead of negotiations. Worldwide recession may be now more likely than not. Flowing from worldwide recession, and sanctions crippling supply chains, millions in poor countries may be doomed to starvation and death from policies proclaimed as life savers.
But the worst possible consequence of proxy war by the US and NATO against Russia is all out nuclear war between the 2 major nuclear powers possessing over 13,000 nuclear weapons. Sixty-four days into war, every day brings new potential for miscalculation, blunder, simple misunderstanding, to trigger warfare not seen since World War II, 77 years ago. If that happens, the catastrophe will not be limited to two Japanese cities.
It is counterproductive for the US to substitute weapons and sanctions for diplomacy if it is truly interested in peace. Last week Blinken counselor Derek Chollet advised that Blinken’s negotiating team refused to even consider Russia’s security concerns regarding NATO’s membership for Ukraine, a red line to Russia they’ve been warning us about for 2 decades. Chollet spilled the beans on Blinken saying “We made clear to the Russians that we were willing to talk to them on issues that we thought were genuine concerns to them in some way. But the future of Ukraine was a non-issue.”
As a result, Secretary of State Blinken hasn’t spoken to his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov since February 15, nine days before war began. That abrogation of simple diplomacy that could have avoided war was inexcusable and unacceptable.
America and its fervent media supporters should be supporting, demanding even, that our government use negotiations, the only means of bringing this horrific war to a prompt conclusion. Endless demonizing of Russian President Putin also makes even starting such necessary negotiations difficult, if not impossible.
That leads to a fair question many in the peace movement and others are asking: Is the U.S. supplying endless weapons but no negotiations simply to wage proxy war fought by Ukrainians, primarily to isolate, weaken, even effect regime change in Russia, rather than to save Ukrainian lives?
We need every media organization in America to begin asking the tough questions that could provide an off ramp from endless war, worldwide recession and starvation, and most importantly, possible nuclear war

- The fundamental political question is why do people obey a government. The answer is that they tend to enslave themselves, to let themselves be governed by tyrants. Freedom from servitude comes not from violent action, but from the refusal to serve. Tyrants fall when the people withdraw their support.
- Étienne De La Boétie, The Politics Of Obedience
- In religion and politics, people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
